NINE IRON linen's steely, dramatic grey with just a hint of crimson became great swathes of deep shadow in the hands of the painter Thomas Cole, sweeping across America's epic mountain ranges and forming wild, turbulent skies laden with thunderstorms.

His momentous landscapes are a celebration of America's sublime wilderness during the mid-19th century, before industrialization took over, invoking the unstoppable force of this overwhelmingly vast terrain.

Fluffy, dimensional, and simply a joy to live with - you’ll feel like a sewing maestro when you pull this cloth out of its first dry cycle.

The fabric arrives flat with a subtle basket-like weave. This weaving technique comes with a delightful surprise once it goes through its first wash and dry.

The threads that are woven to make the outside of the squares - they “lift up”.
The threads that are used to weave the inside of the squares - those “drop-down”.

You get a cloth that looks like squares of a freshly made waffle deliciousness. It is just that yummy!

This cloth is wider than our usual selection at 84" wide.  Once it is washed - the cloth will shrink to get that dimensional waffle surface.
Approximate shrinkage - the width of cloth shrinks 17% (weft of the fabric) and 28% on the length ( warp of the fabric)

Waffle weave cloth is great for:
- Bath towels
- Robes
- Throws
- Duvet covers
- Pillow shams
- Lounge garments
- Decorative pillows
- Curtains
- Beach towels
- Picnic blankets
- items that need to have dimension and softness

Reviewer: Linda

I have Fibromyalgia so my hands hurt always. The towels and washcloths that I made from this fabric have made my life a little easier. They are so much easier to grip and hold than traditional terry cloth. The texture is enough to feel without being rough on my overly sensitive skin. I will never use my old towels, again. Sewing them was so simple. I am thinking of selling some!

Fun to work with
Reviewer: Cristine

I made the bath sheet and divided the remaining fabric into thirds for dish towels. The dish towels dry quickly and are absorbent. It was hard to determine the shrinkage and I will cut down the dish towels— they are too big for where they hang in my kitchen. But I thought the fabric was easy to work with and fun to wash and dry to get the puckering effect.

Maybe for dish towels.
Reviewer: Lisa

I purchased this fabric, based on reviews, but I'm not sure how it has such high reviews. I cut the fabric as suggested and did all the sewing, put them in the washer/dryer twice, but the towels are huge and very scratchy. I would not suggest this for hand or bath towels. Not soft at all and leaves a lot of lint. It does dry quickly so that's a plus.

A bit rough for towels
Reviewer: Linda

The shrinkage estimate was spot on! I made a washcloth to test the fabric before jumping into bath towels, and I'm glad I did because I feel it's a bit rough for that. I'm continuing to use and wash/dry the sample to see if it changes over time. If not, I will use the remaining yardage to make a spring/summer throw to use on the deck.
